HISTORY -- The National Line (National Steam Navigation Company) was founded in Liverpool in 1863. The first intention of this line was to sail Liverpool to the US south. However, due to the civil war, routes were set up to New York. The National Line was one of the first lines to establish agencies all over Norway, and became quite popular in the early years. The Norwegians that traveled by this line had to go via England, as they had no direct sailing from Norwegian ports. In 1870 the company added London - New York sailings and made irregular Boston sailings.

SINGLE TORCH LAMP FROM THE BRITISH INDIA STEAM NAVIGATION

DESCRIPTION -- An unusual object and a great find which is a 'single torch lamp' from the British India Steam Navigation Co. In the olden days, the item was hung adjacent to the old furnaces. From its lighted wick, rags or waste soaked in paraffin on the end of a rod would be set alight and then placed in the furnace to ignite the fuel to heat the boilers. We believe this to be a very rare find indeed, which is in a great condition.

HISTORY -- British India Steam Navigation Company was formed in 1856 as the Calcutta and Burmah Steam Navigation Company. The company had been formed out of Mackinnon, Mackenzie & Co, a trading partnership of the Scots William Mackinnon and Robert Mackenzie, to carry mail between Calcutta and Rangoon. It became British India SN Co in 1862. Under the hand of Lord Inchcape (James Mackay) who had become chairman in 1913, the company became part of the P&O group of companies in 1914 through a complex amalgamation, but continued with its own identity and organisation for another nearly 60 years until 1972, when it was entirely absorbed into P&O.
